Barb, Garfunkel America, Smithsonian Folkways Records discussed on Not Too Shabby


Exceptional day. I can't believe I get to be a DJ on Election day. Uh, I'm surprised as you Anyways, What did we hear? We heard Simon and Garfunkel America That was the single mix from their greatest hits from 1972 Rodriguez. This is not a song. It's an outburst door. The establishment blues from the great Cold fact from 1970. Um, no. I had not heard of Rod regress until I saw the searching for Sugarman documentary and that movie just blew my mind. It was just so Brilliant. It was such a great film and in such a great way to introduce someone to the beauty of his music. Before that. Someone named Barb with a song called Vote Them Out single she made back in 2018, Gina, Magnus and Taj Mahal. Don't you wish it was true? A single that came out last year. And then a request for Neil Young campaigner in 2017 Hitchhiker. And obviously we're playing a lot of songs about voting and the election today here on the Green Morning radio think I might Just say for the point of it. First of all, this is a prerecorded show, so you can't Call the station and complain. You'd have to send me an email. That green Morning at W R A. T F m dot org and let me know if you like it. You don't like it? Also, of course, these songs don't always reflect the The attitudes and political release of the Bertie the station. Or its board of directors and sometimes even this DJ so Just want to make sure you know this is ah, This is food for thought songs here. And what's our next dose here and Article seven. I mean, set seven. Going to start off with the vote amount buggy from Gary S. Paxton and Jim Lusk and then an instrumental called the Lonesome Election Blues. From Sean Watkins and Matt Chamberlain came out this year. Judy Collins and Jonas A. Shield One morning comes to America. Also came out this year and then another request for hard times. Come again no more. This is the red clay Ramblers version from 1981 and then Another song from that suffragettes, Syria's Call the winning the vote very almost humorous, yet strangely outdated narrative of someone Not thinking the suffragettes had a point until they finally come around at the end of the song. Interesting 1958 again from Smithsonian Folkways Records. Let's start this off, though, with the vote him.
